DESCRIPTION

 

Located on the Great Eastern Highway. Originally known as Mount Baker it was a little too similar to Mount Barker and the name was changed in 1902 to avoid confusion. The name comes from a local settler John (or James) Baker.

 

Although today Bakers Hill itself is little more than a refreshment stop there are a number of interesting towns in the surrounding area including Chidlow, Wundowie, Wooroloo and Clackline where you will find a good rest area on the east side of the bridge (with public toilets.)

 

Look for signs advertising the sale of local produce in this area. You can get excellent stone fruit and tomatoes (in season) at rock bottom prices.

 

HISTORY

 

Bakers Hill was originally a railway siding and then a station on the Midland to Spencers Brook line. The line closed in 1966 whean alternate line through the Avon Valley opened.
